I am considering carrying out this mod in the future on my 59 plate MK2.5, I did it on my Facelift Mk 1. What a difference it made especially with a heavy loaded car.
I do have a question about the hoses. I will be changing the brake hose set before I do the Mod and I see you changed them as part of the mod. Are the hoses different between the Drum and Disc? I don't want to get ones for the drums then in a few months time change the rear ones again. If it's just a matter of length then I would get the longer ones as these would fit both or is a more fundimental difference such as the fitting at the caliper end?
